Palm unwraps m125 PDA

Palm finally unveiled its m125 PDA this morning after a false start earlier this week.

As expected, the device brings m50x-family functionality to the m10x series. So there's a 33MHz Dragonball VZ processor, SD card slot, Universal Connector, Palm OS 4.0 and USB cradle. 8MB of memory complete the spec.

As per the piccies that leaked out of Palm last month, the device sports a two-tone black and silver faceplate. And, as Dell's inadvertent pre-announcement of the product through one of its sales catalogues proved, the m125 will cost $249.

That includes a large software bundle, which nicely contains DataViz' Documents to Go 3.0 - buyers can download version 4.0 for free, provided they do so within 30 days of purchasing the PDA - for reading and creating MS Office documents. There's also Palm's eBook reader, an AOL mail reader, MultiMail SE for POP 3 and IMAP 4 email, AvantGo's Web browser and MGI's PhotoSuite Mobile Edition 2.21, but little else to email home about.

Interestingly, Palm's release statement says the device is available in the US now, with worldwide availability following on 20 September. Since today is the 20th, we wonder if Palm had planned to release the m125 sooner than it has. ®
